On tap at L’Amere a Boire. Pours a clear orange amber with a medium white head. Spicy citrus and toasted malt notes. Thin to medium bodied and smooth, and rather malty. Very clean finish, and initially not much bitterness, though the grainy lager finish slowly comes back later, but not as strong as on their other lagers.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2016 A Cerna Hora with a caramel touch...Hops are more subdued due to the sweeter malts, but all remains as drinkable and well structured as the mother pilsner...This is dangerously easy to finish Polotmavy...

Verre de dégustation à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeurs de miel et de céréales. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée orangée et on y dénote aucune bulle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de miel et d’épices. La durée de l’arrière goût est moyenne. Palette: Le corps est mince et la texture est huileuse. L’effervescence en bouche est moyenne. Présence d’agrumes en arrière goût. (Rating #331)

Pint drank at the brewpub. Pours a nice copper color with a hint of red and a decent head. Smells of honey, some nice earthy malt and peppery hops. Tastes of honey and caramel with touches of hops. Very sessionable with a full mouthfeel.

Not so different from the Vollbier actually. On tap, this appears pretty much the same color slightly more biscuity sweet while the vollbier was drier. Good, but nothing more.

Clear copper with a quickly diminishing white head. Bready malt aroma. Not very tasty and very simple. Some diluted caramel, a bit bready with some none-bitter floral hops. Medium and oily body. A decent easy-to-drink pub brew but too simple for me to give it the passing mark of 3.0. Named after a czech dragon that accepted to stop setting everything on fire in exchange for a barrel of this beer. Dragons are powerful creatures but which such business acumen it’s no wonder they lived in caves.

On draught 6/3/2005 at the brewpub with tiggmtl, Muzzlehatch and Bret Kuhnhenn. Copper-yellow with some darker amber tinges to it. Off-white head recedes to a ring, slight lacing. Honey and caramel in the nose with some baked brown bread. Good hops apparency in both the nose and flavor. Nice crisp, floral saaz hops, lightly bitter. Notes of peaches, earthiness from the yeast and plenty of hops flavor in the middle and end. Low carbonation, big bubbles though. Medium body, well-balanced and quite enjoyable. This style has grown on me quite a bit recently.
